Solar Lighting Kit 20w


Solar Lighting Kit 20w

sl20w1 Vysal’s professional Rural Solar Lighting Kit 20W is ideal for illuminating the stable, yard, tack room, field shelter or lock-up store in livery situations. Plus …….. many other agricultural and equestrian applications in locations where mains quality lighting is required but no mains power supply exists.

It uniquely provides a proven year-round performance using 11W 12V CFL low-energy fluorescent lamps (equivalent to a 60W GLS lamp) housed in a robustly constructed, weatherproof bulkhead light fitting. NB the bulkhead fitting supplied may differ from that shown in the image below).




The Rural Solar Lighting Kit 20W contains:

· 20W crystalline solar panel (35 year life expectancy)
· Morningstar SHS-6 charge controller
· 1 x 11 W or 2 x 11W 12V energy saving 12V CFL lamp with E27 cap
· 1 x or 2 x IP54 weatherproof bulkhead luminaire with E27 12V lampholder
· 2 x 5m lengths of 2-core cable with red / black conductors (1mm2 c.s.a.)
· 1 x or 2 x IP54 weather proof wall switch
· 2 x wiring harnesses c/w inline fuses, battery clips and connectors

Required but NOT supplied:

We recommend that you purchase a 12V car or caravan deep cycle battery with a capacity of at least 75Ak~85Ah so that you can be certain that you will always have enough light available. A battery of this type is available from most motoring / caravanning shops.

The Numax sealed leisure 110 12V 80 Ah battery costing £71.99 is ideal and can be purchased from – click here

If, over the course of a month, you use more energy than the solar panels generate you can take the battery home and give it an overnight boost using a car battery charger.

For the technically minded:

A charge controller is not required when a 10W solar panel is used with a 75Ah battery as the unregulated charge current cannot damage the battery. If you use a sealed lead acid battery with less capacity than that recommended above, you will need a 4Ah charge controller. Call our sales helpline if you need assistance and they will be happy to advise you.
